We officially started our homeschool adventure! PIOG
I started homeschooling my 5 year old daughter Monday. We only spent about 20 minutes working on our vowel sounds and working on our weekly Bible Verse since we had a lot going on Monday. She did really good.
Yesterday we continued reviewing the vowels and sounds. We also began writing the letter I and the number 1. We are using the Abeka K4 right now but we are kind of doubling up on some stuff since she knows a good bit of it. My goal is to start with the K5 by August (around the time the boys start back to school). We also worked on our Bible verse (from Abeka also). Romans 3:23.
Today we reviewed vowels and sound and added the letter T. Then we worked on adding the letter T with the vowels and making blends. She had a little bit of a hard time, but that is ok because that is a hard concept. We will work on this alot before we move on. She wrote the number 1 and 2 and also the letter I. I also found out that she does know what the numbers 11-19 look like. I didn't realize that she knew those..lol. So we started with number 20 recognition today. We glued 20 cheerios to a piece of construction paper and we also glued an igloo to a piece of construction paper with the letter I on it.
It went pretty good. Writing is probably the hardest thing by far. She does not really enjoy it that much, so I am trying to keep it under 10 minutes...As long as she recognizes numbers/letters the writing will come along. It doesn't really matter to me how long it takes just as long as she is happy.
She is wanting to learn about butterflies. So, I hope that one day this week we can go to the library to check out some books about butterflies. My husband and I share a vehicle so that can be a problem...lol.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with everyone how it was going. Tomorrow after she writes the letter I, I think we are going to use the cheerios or cotton balls to make the letter I..Maybe that will help..lol.
